Emler, Tchamitchian, Echampard
Here are 3 musicians who, for more than twenty years, have developed the ability to compose and improvise together while wandering through multiple projects in large orchestras such as: a concerto for trio and orchestra created by the National Orchestra of Lille, under the direction of Jean-Claude Casadesus, multiple pieces for trio and harmony ensemble and the essential MegaOctet.
Throughout the residences and albums, an original musical language was born, far from the “clichés” of jazz, inviting to travel within the multiple influences stemming from the music of the XXth century.
Their pleasure of “musicing” together is visible and this trio happily shares it.
The Useful Report
common to speak of “complicity”, especially when the musicians have been
playing together for twenty years. It’s a little less common to say that within the
Trio ETE, the listener isn’t really hearing a dialogue between three individuals,
but rather a polyphonic monologue. No one plays a solo per se, as Andy Emler would say, the trio is the soloist. The result: the trio becomes an independent musical entity, with its necessary organic cohesion.
all the more true, as the sound matter is always in motion. The voyage is as
much external, with the music being in constant motion, as it is internal, with the listening experience being synonymous with openness – to oneself and to the world around.
Andy Emler: piano
Claude Tchamitchian: double bass
Eric Echampard: drums
